1/14/09: The Strangest Thing I Have Seen In A While

**A horrible Scottish club, Fort William FC are attempting to make their squad America's Team. I'm assuming because the Galaxy are horribly failing :-). Fort William's means of achieving their lofty aspirations are by bringing over an entire American high school squad(I'm kidding but a good high school squad could probably compete in the Scottish Highland League where Fort William FC plays) or rather 10 American amatuer players who couldn't crack the USL-2 or the PDL. I figure Fort William could get some Americans to dominate who wouldn't mind a paid vacation to Scotland along with some time on TV. But, the whole idea is sort of ludicrous:

I'm wondering if Fort William are aware that we have professional teams in America? The whole story is here via the Offside Rules. America's Team FC Website. Maybe TFC could try to do this with England? LOL.

I love the ending, "This isn't fantasy folks real trophies are at stake!"

**Most of Crewture readers probably already got tickets through the link on the left for USA vs. Mexico. But, if your waiting until the last second all Crew season tickets holders will get an email with more details next week with a presale around the 22nd. The rest of the tickets will then go on sale to the general public Jan 28th at 12 p.m. More info at the Black & Gold Standard.
